The Triumph of Bohemia

I

If you chance to visit Bohemia

or where Bohemia hides in modern

surreal seascape open for us to learn

the coast where strips are painted Sepia,

please wallow in the freedom of knowledge

the physics of the world will make hearts fresh

a net of science struggles to enmesh

the steam of fresh brewed coffee like college.

In Bohemia no true commission

the art whether sculpted in stone or hung

within the visions of each lovely guest.

One must find trust in all composition

the energy within a singer’s lung

to help the rage of youth and oppressed.

II

A place within a sphere of many oaths

the promise of a healthier lifestyle

the promise of a life that is worthwhile

a sphere unlike a closet of old clothes.

Our blood ties should have answered to Heaven

a loving community of the blessed

then followed by a broken heart to test

these emotions used in bread to leaven.

One good deed kept quiet kills a thousand

each outside praise will count as needed wage

communicate through our own sullen dreams.

We quickly find we now misunderstand

we hope this script will not turn into rage

a tear in stitch of shirt along its seams.

III

Sometimes nature will betray its folly

within the broken hearts of so many

to listen to footsteps without any

new shoes to help with our melancholy.

When tenderness is gone and heart turns hard

our ornament becomes too dangerous

our lowly crimes become too traitorous

our spirit holds within it one last card.

Those that understand Bohemia stay

without Bohemia this sickness grow

we need creation for creation sake.

So welcome to this island where we play

with a Cello and a Violin bow

or paint or pen, a chance to give and take.
